    First repaint/kitbash/mod/etc...
    NP's BWA Dinobot Gallery
    NP's YouTube Radicon Channel
    * Has tons of helpful videos to help new Radicons like me plus more!

    Anyway... Starting with a Blazing Lockdown I've stripped the paint, sanded down rub joints, and started painting

    UPDATE 26/05/09: Painting continued
    Finished the roof of the car, masked off the windows (inside and out) to maintain the clear window effect
    Also, I decided I disliked the saw look, too brutal. So I shaved them off, making a sort of lazer knife thingy (will look better when painted)

    I have one of these in the works too, also using blazing Lockdown. I have most of the factory paint apps removed already, now I just need to figure out how I am going to paint him. I hope yours turns out great!

    updated!

    made the weapon and roof more unique so that it will differ from the original creation of NP

    sadly it might not be started until the next weekend, not this upcomming... the torso of the figure has to have the new blue paint removed and and re-sprayed. it was such an irregular shape that the paint was completely uneven and some funky bubbling went on. hopefulling hanging it will make a difference

    oh also i still have to go buy some model paints/testers for the detailing, but i will have the basic 3-colour assembly up before that happens
